OFFENSE

Coming off a record-setting 70–33 Orange Bowl victory over Clemson, West Virginia fans aren’t merely excited about the 2012 Mountaineers offense. They’re giddy. The reasons? WVU will be in its second year under offensive whiz and head coach Dana Holgorsen. The Mountaineers finished last season 15th nationally in total offense, averaging 469.5 yards per game. And they return seven starters, most notably weapons like quarterback Geno Smith and receivers Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey. Most of the line is returning as well.

Smith, the MVP of the Orange Bowl, set a single-season school record by throwing for 4,385 yards in Holgorsen’s “Air Raid” offense. The first line of receivers is exceptional. Austin, an inside speed receiver, is one of the nation’s best. The 5'9" senior was eighth nationally in receptions per game (7.8) and set a single-season school record with 101 catches for 1,186 yards.
